Corso Vittorio Emanuele, in the heart of Salerno, will be set up with giant and stylized chandeliers, known as King's Chandeliers.
Piazza Flavio Gioia, the so-called Rotonda di Salerno, is going to host a large tree creating, with its branches, the illusion of an enchanted forest.
In Piazza Sant'Agostino there will be Vietri ceramics. Approaching the station, however, visitors will find a very bright Christmas ball.
The Ferris Wheel of Salerno

Among other cabins, there will also be a VIP one, offering leather seats, furniture in walnut wood, TV and mini-bar. The ride lasts about 15-20 minutes.
